Anthony Peluso has been claimed off of waivers from St. Louis by Winnipeg.

Peluso was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the 6th round (160th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to turning professional, Peluso played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League with the Erie Otters, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Brampton Battalion. On March 12, 2009, the St. Louis Blues signed Peluso to a three-year entry-level contract. Peluso skated in 60 games for Peoria last year, primarily in an enforcer and energy role. He led the Rivermen with 159 penalty minutes – chipping in offensively with 4 goals and 5 assists and finishing plus-two for the year. Peoria missed the AHL playoffs after finishing fourth in the Midwest Division. Peluso signed a two-way, one-year contract with St. Louis in July 2012.

To date, Peluso has played his entire career in the American Hockey League with the Riverman. Its likely he will stick with the St. Johns IceCaps in the AHL.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
